Creation of 100 new subsidized jobs in Saint-Martin During her trip to Saint-Martin on December 16, the Minister of Labor signed three subsidized contracts with the associations Le Manteau and Les Petits Palmiers.


After Hurricane Irma, the government created a total of 95 new subsidized jobs in the non-profit sector (association). "We did it at the request of Daniel Gibbs," said the minister. In addition, the State will finance in Saint Martin up to 50% employment against 80 to XNUMX% before. Nevertheless Muriel Pénicaud was clear: “an assisted contract must be a springboard for the person. This should not be a simple subsidy for the association (or the company, note), it is an aid for the person who benefits from it. ” This is why the government has decided to "change its philosophy".

"The subsidized contracts must be granted to companies which undertake to train and support the people thus recruited," announced the Minister. “An assisted contract is not an end in itself. It must help the person to have a better chance of getting a job, ”she says.

To date, 237 subsidized contracts have been signed in Saint-Martin.
